Confession: Breathe Life into these Bones

Here’s a prayer of confession from John Birch’s Faith and Worship website.

Prayer of Confession
(inspired by Ezekiel 37:1-14, Matthew 16:24, Luke 14:27,
Matthew 7:21-23, Matthew 25:31-46 and others)

You call us to be your voices in this world
and we stay silent.

You call us to be your hands in this world
and we keep them hidden.

You call us to be your feet in this world
and we go our own way.

When we meet those who are doubting
and say nothing, forgive us.

When we meet those who need your touch
and do nothing, forgive us.

When we are called to take up your cross
and carry nothing, forgive us.

Breathe life into these bones
bring freedom to these lives
that we might declare
with heart and soul and voice
that you are our Lord and our God. Amen
